Groupe CASINO

The Casino group is one of the world's leadind food retailers, active in multiple retail formats. Its operating performance, wich has grown steadily over the past several years and now exceeds the industry average, is the result of the Group's unique position in the market and its ability to anticipate changing lifestyles and consumer pratices.The Casino group's positionning in the market is based on :- a range of stores in multiple formats that emphazise convenience and discounted prices;- a segmented product offering that is carefully calibrated for each store;- the strength of our own-brand proucts, which are especially appealing to consumers;- store comfort and quality, including at our hypermarkets, which are matched with customer-friendly shopping centres to create an appealing, welcoming facility scled to human size.In France, the Group's sales performance is underpinned by a blend of banners and formats well suited to both the economic environment and fundamental, long term social trends : an aging population, smaller households, less time devoted to shopping and a greater concern for price.At the international level, Casino has chosen to focus its efforts on emerging countries with high growth potential, primarily in South America and Southeast Asia where its subsidiaries are industry leaders and firmly anchored in their communities

Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    The Casino Group undertakes, for the non food products, to require from its suplliers that they use palm oil certified RSPO in the composition of its own-brand products.
  • Where relevant, what processes is the organisation establishing to engage with interested parties, for example to resolve conflict or to use sustainably produced palm oil?
    Environmental protection is a priority at casino. Casino recognizes the importance of biodiversity conservation. That is the reason for what Casino has decided to become member of RSPO and to respect its commitments which are 100% sustainable palm oil in our non food products by 2015.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    Casino does not purchase palm oil as a raw materail. However, a lot of non food own brand products contain palm oil. Our objective is to ensure that the palm oil’s supplier is member of RSPO and that we have RSPO certificates for each product which contains palm oil.
  • Any other information that would support the application such as what your organisation hopes to gain from joining RSPO and how it would support RSPO?
    Thanks to its commitment in the RSPO, the Casino Group will be able to purpose at its consumers more and more sustainable products and so promote RSPO principles.
